Bloggers from all over the world are using WordPress these days. Even companies like Yahoo or Ford are using it as a framework for their corporate blogs.
Because WordPress is by default not really fast there are several steps you can take to improve its performance. This post points out several essential articles about speeding up WordPress.
First of all, all the people that are interested in optimizing and playing around with WordPress should seriously consider visiting Yoast. Joost de Valk, the blog owner, writes in his blog about how to improve WordPress, new useful plugins and SEO. He created several useful posts that might give you more insight into optimizing your blog.
The first article you should consider reading from Yoast is about speeding and cleaning up WordPress. It is a great article with several tips on how to make WordPress faster. Take a look at it!
Also consider looking at How to Make Better use of WordPress Functions. This is another article from Yoast.com about WordPress hacks that might speed up WordPress.
Speeding up the administration section of WordPress is also important. I actually wrote this article myself. It should be pretty easy to follow along the steps explained in the article to make the admin section respond faster.
